All We Know: It’s Crackling
It’s Saturday and 80 and I are piling on layers of clothes to go play in the snow. (If you’re into counting: 2 pairs of pants, 3 pairs of socks, a long sleeve shirt, a t-shirt, a hoodie and a long, thick woolly sweater, plus a water-proof jacket, gloves and a dalmatian print fleece headband/ear warmer.)
Amidst the Christmas Story-style preparation, I get an email from Dad Gansie. It has an attachment. I assume it’s snow related, as South Jersey was also hit with almost two feet of snow.
I should have known better. The video featured a mysterious casserole dish that, according to my father is, “crispin'” and “cracklin.'” I have no effing idea what it is, but I do know I forgot to wish my MomMom (grandmother) a happy birthday.
Any guesses out there?
I’m going with some sort of Potato dish. Maybe au gratin.
It was modified mac and cheese. We used farfel bow tie noodels, milk,shredded mozzarella cheese, Swiss , shaved some peccerino ramono on top to put under the broiler
it was tasty, first and not the last time making it not from the box
that sounds delicious! I like the blue casserole dish:)
Crispy pork fat?
